A US man who was born a woman before undergoing gender realignment surgery has given birth to a second child, ABC News reported on its website.
Thomas Beatie, who is legally male but decided to keep his female sex organs during chest reconstruction surgery and testosterone therapy, attracted worldwide headlines last year after revealing his pregnancy.
The 35-year-old gave birth to a baby girl in Oregon last July and on Tuesday celebrated the arrival of a second child, a baby boy, ABC News reported.
Beatie was last year dubbed the 'pregnant man' after appearing on Oprah Winfrey's television talk show to discuss his pregnancy.
"I feel it's not a male or female desire to have a child. It's a human need. I'm a person and I have the right to have a biological child," Beatie said. – (Sapa, June 2009)
